john kerry will be devoting his time and attention to trying to get the talks started again. so, i think it's a very careful political judgment by president obama, let john kerry spend his time seeing if he can get things going and if he can, and if the parade looks like it's moving ahead, then i think you'll see president obama become more visibly involved. >> jamie: well, be ambassador, secretary now kerry, will be making the trip. so what do you think we'll see in the next few weeks? >> well, i think the palestinians have got to be more realistic and accept the advice they've given freely to give up this pre-condition. whether they're in a position is anybody's guest and doesn't get anywhere close to the substance here, where the palestinian authority can only speak for part of the palestinian people. i really don't see any prospect in the near future of progress. not for lack of pressure by the administration on israel, but just because of the objective reality on the ground, on the west bank. >> jamie: the great and very complex risk of iran. what exactly did you read into wha

anti-americanism, and be sensitive to the church of anti-american as? to the kerry said people? gusto americans seem to have a record of worrying about this. not only do i find the term itself is used as early as 1767. it appears in the papers of the founding generation franklin, jefferson and correspondent a term that was fought over by left and right through the 19th century and pretty much one by conservatives as a term to quash dissent and social and on policies in the united states and became an official concerned beginning during the second world war and especially the cold war when we began to have a scientific approach to analyzing the sewers and coming up with policies to combat it. the problem is that the soppy category. it's a term that reduces cognitive backs the sum total of our knowledge. it doesn't explain foreign behavior. principal diversity of positions abroad are on the same. the problem is they don't think like us. there are rational people i talk about latin americans, there hot-blooded and that's why they're having a protest right now. not for example because we
divided than ever. as we have seen from john kerry's visit today, the tensions between the united states and this government, not very cordial. imbued with a lot of tension. a lot coming back from the community of nations they have not really a implemented. i would say that it is all because of a constitution that failed the entire public at large. basically taking segments of society and addressing themselves to them. host: this unannounced trip that you just indicated in iraq, these officials with the president on his trip, the associated press pointed out that there were a series of meetings over flights. iran says that this is humanitarian aid and that syria is getting the weapons or else. guest: a whole concern, as the israelis feel that regardless of everything going on, they look to the north and in syria they see it disintegrating. weapons are flowing into the regime of the time. if we discussed the threat to iran stabilizing, weapons would also be a threat to the united states and its interest in the region. host: independent line, florida, welcome to the program. caller: welcom

as well. could this be obama helping to set up secretary of state john kerry for what you talk about is the larger issue of peace negotiations down the line? >> yes, and i believe secretary kerry is very committed to a middle east peace process. i think it's long overdue. and i think the president's got to give him the political cover that secretary kerry would need. and key is going to be the israeli public. and the relationship with president netanyahu. you know you what say candid or business-like in diplomacy, it means that it's not a perfect relationship. but, you know, a lot of leaders, they develop this relationship. a better relationship, over time, and i think that's what the president is doing. >> so as long as the business relationship can produce positive business results it's a good thing. let's talk about iran. the nuclear issue that's a top issue for president obama's agenda. on friday, defense secretary chuck hagel said there are these plans to beef up missiles after north korea said it was going to be trying to have its preemptive nuclear strike against the u.s. or l

to happen. what i can guarantee is we'll make the effort. what i can guarantee is that secretary kerry will be spending a good deal of time in discussions with the parties where i can assure you that nobody feels a greater interest in us achieving this than his majesty, and so we're just going to keep on plugging away. the one thing i did say, i think to both sides is the window of opportunity still exists but it is getting more and more difficult. the mistrust is building instead of ebbing. the logistics of providing security for israel get more difficult with new technologies. and the logistics are creating a continuous and functioning palestinian state become more difficult with settlements. so both sides have to begin to think about their long term streeng interests, instead of worrying about can i gain a short term tactical advantage here or there? and say to themselves, what is the big picture and how do we get this done? that's ultimately what i believe both people want. i think it was very interesting that my speech in jerusalem, some of the strongest applause came when i addre

that they are ready to go back to the table and secretary kerry can pick it up from there. >> do you think there will be disappointed when president obama goes there tomorrow without a public plan? >> i think the palestinians are already disappointed in president obama. he promised them a palestinian state for years ago in cairo. nothing has happened on that front. of course, he blames the palestinians as much as the israelis for that. what is critical here is for them to reinvest in this president. there is no other way to achieve an independent palestinian state other than through the ages of aegisrican president -- of the american presidents working through the situation. he needs to give the american president reason to work on netanyahu for the two states that they talked about today. >> thank you. and one more topic from today's press conference. president obama said the u.s. is investigating whether chemical weapons have been deployed in syria. thee are claims by government that rebel forces were behind the attack. the syrian government and rebels have accused each other of using ch
